Gibbs is one of the best new school rappers, IMO, and we all know Jeezy has a catalog of classics. But, let's be honest. Gangsta rap doesn't sell these days. Jeezy has only dropped one retail LP since 2008, and has never successfully broken a solo artist since he blew up. He also doesn't make pop singles, or songs for radio play. So, Gibbs should really be asking himself why he went there in the first place. Two street artists who don't make radio songs aren't really in any position to do much more than make street music. Which is the worst part about all this: no more Jeezy/Gibbs collabs.
Meek Mill can rap, but to me, he always felt like the lost member of State Property, or Major Figgas. His rapping has somewhat of an old school quality to it that came through on a lot of his old mixtapes. But, once he got signed to MMG, he started SHOUTING all of his raps and using the same style of beats too much. The same way Ross has tried to make BMF another 50 times, Meek has done with I'ma Boss. I'm interested to see if he can successfully drop a second album, or if his career ends up being a Tony Yayo situation.
